The annexures of the Forensic Audit report conducted on the bond scam has been held back by Parliament following an order of the Attorney General, UNP MP Harsha de Silva told Parliament today.

Dr. de Silva said this is situation had arisen despite the ruling given by Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to release the report to all MPs.

“ I understand that Central Bank had said in a letter not to release the annexures without the approval of the Attorney General,” the MP said.

“The executive summary of the forensic audit report had revealed that the Sri Lankan government had suffered losses exceeding Rs.10 billion through the bond issues made from 2005 to 2015. I don’t know whether annexures says something more. Therefore we want everything disclosed,” he said.

Government MP Kanchnana Wijesekera also called for the release of annexures saying the government would be blamed for not releasing. “We cannot understand as to why the Speaker is holding back these details,” he said. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    No one is above the Law in a democracy. The President of the USA is being impeached right now at the US Senate. AG is a public servant of Canada. He does not have divine powers to withhold the information that has been investigated and reported. Some of Sri Lanka Public Servant are Agents of Politicians.
